This is the best apple crisp you will ever have if you like a lot of crumbly topping and don’t like oats, like me. Yes, it is possible to find an apple crisp without oats recipe… and my mom gives this five stars.

This is one of my favorite desserts and my favorite way to make this is by using simple ingredients that do not include an oat topping. The best part of this easy apple crisp recipe is that the crumble topping will last for days if it’s in an airtight container.

I bake mine in a glass dish that’s about 8×12 inches. This glass casserole baking dish on Amazon is perfect for this apple crisp recipe… and it’s only $20.

Apple Crisp Without Oats Ingredients

  • 4 apples (you can use any type of apple – Granny Smith apples, Honeycrisp apples, or picked from an apple orchard during apple season)
  • 1 cup of white sugar (some use coconut sugar – you do you!)
  • 1 cup of light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (increase this if you love cinnamon apples)

Apple Crisp Without Oats Directions

1.) Peel and cut the apples so you have cubed apples that are no bigger than a square inch or sliced apples. While you are doing this, let your oven heat up to 350 degrees.

2.) Put the apples in the bottom of the prepared baking dish and start the crisp topping!

3.) Mix together all of the other ingredients, except the butter.

4.) Slowly add the butter until it is all mixed in.

5.) Sprinkle the topping over the apples and spread it out evenly.

6.) Cover the dish with foil and bake it for 30 minutes.

7.) After the first 30 minutes is up, remove the foil and bake it for 30 more minutes.

8.) Enjoy with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream!

To jazz up this easy recipe, try adding lemon juice, maple syrup, caramel sauce, or strawberry rhubarb.

    First of all DARRRRLING famiily!

    I found that 4 apples was a little out of ratio for the amount of crisp, so increased to 5 apples, but imagine I coulda done a 6th apple. I also added pecans. Yummm — will be making this again!

  2. S says:

    Tried this recipe and this was terrible. Didn’t cook well at all. Screwed up an entire apple crisp….

    • Christina says:

      It’s too bad it didn’t work out for you. It works every time for my mom and me and we eat it all in a couple of days. I hope you feel better and feel less angry about it soon 🙂

  3. Amy says:

    Great recipe! We found that we like more apples. We used 7 large apples and baked it in a 9×13 glass pan and it was perfect!

  4. Kris says:

    Fantastic! I made two changes. I cut both sugars in half and added chopped pecans in the crumble. We didn’t miss the extra sugar.
